Check out this video review of the Andy Timmons Xotic FX BB Preamp overdrive/boost pedal by Fretpoint demonstrator Mike Baugh.The Xotic FX BB Preamp has become a vital part of Andy Timmon’s sound and I think Mike does a great job of showing just how great this pedal can sound.
The BB Preamp is Andy Timmons signature pedal by Xotic Effects and offers smoother, warmer and more compressed tone than the standard BB Preamp pedal with even richer harmonics. Housed in a durable orange metallic paint, the pedal itself looks great and has a real boutique feel about it.
If you want to get that Andy Timmons sound then this pedal really is essential. It will give you a wonderful array of overdrive tones and is probably one of our favourite effects pedals. It’s worth pointing out however that even though the pedal can be driven really hard it’s not a distortion pedal so if your looking for more gain this probably isn’t the pedal for you. If you love playing classic rock and blues then this pedal will be perfect though!
The following text is taken from the BB Preamp page on the Xotic FX website.

- The BB also utilizes a pre-gain stage which allows the Pedal to go from a very pristine clean to a very smooth,compressed, overdriven sound.
- True bypass for eliminating any signal interference when switched off.
